Hello, dolls! Hello, weekend!! <3 Is it weird that I am kind of disappointed that I did not get any snow days this year? 😛 I know I at least have 10 days left until we officially welcome Spring, but anything that would save me from waking up at 4AM seems to be out of the equation. I know I’ve mentioned this a gazillion times already, but summer this year is going to be AMAZING and I can’t stop thinking about it! I am already dreaming about our little “traditions” and how baby A is going to be part of them this year. One of the events that I enjoy going to is Artscape.
Artscape is an annual event held in Baltimore, Maryland — Mt. Royal specifically where I used to work! 🙂 It is America’s largest free arts festival with over 350,000 attendees every year — trust me, I know this because I had to serve thousands of people in 3 days! The theme every year is different and there are performers that people look forward to.
Mt. Royal is the perfect spot for Artscape. It’s the center of arts in Baltimore so there is always something interesting to see. I remember adoring the buildings in the area whenever I walk to my yoga class from work.
It could get really hot and crowded so major tip, be comfortable! 🙂
Ferris Wheel for the kids and kids at heart.
How can you not love Artscape?
First Stop: Miss Jody’s Donuts
Perfect snack while walking around.
We went to Bangkok Garden for lunch — cause authentic Asian food is something that we always look forward to 😉
What’s left of our giant tub of donuts after 5 minutes lol
Pad Thai, Chicken Satay, and delicious mini pies for lunch!!! <3
Italian Sausage for A’s after lunch snack 😛
Long and crowded road ahead of us. Ha!
Nothing like iced tea to beat the heat!
Happy to share my first Artscape experience with my sissy!
..and my man! <3
BTS: What it looked like 3 days before Artscape. Walked in my kitchen with at least 100 cases to sort and put away. All for the busy weekend ahead!
I couldn’t even get “in” LOL
Thank you Sysco overnight delivery guy 😐
Grilled at least 50 clod hearts for pit beef!
Raw oysters for lucky Artscape attendees!
A and I don’t work together. Since he was free that Saturday morning, he helped me work outside <3
Probably one of the most exhausting and fulfilling weekends ever!!!
When I think of Artscape, I think of prints, loud colors that represent beautiful art, or neutral colors that remind me of the articheture that you can see in Mt. Vernon. The artists make me think of “bohemian style” — easy, free, and comfortable!
Here’s my simple take on bohemian style.
